I don't want you to use the term "fora" because it sounds like flora, which reminds me of a jungle. I don't like jungles, because they are too many wild duffers hiding in the thickets. *shivers*

I voted for forums.

"Forums" has become accepted through usage the same way Americans refer to a single datum as "data" even though that's plural. Pedantically speaking, you can never have one piece of data.

And just like this, I'm also starting to work on getting the forum moved to what I hope will be a more stable server. I'm also planning on running some updates to the forum software so that it'll be on the latest version of vBulletin.

With this will come a few things:

The forum will be available at www.narniaforums.com

The forum will lose its' current design (which is, itself, about 10 years old now, and has never been changed).

The forum will need a new design created for it.

I'm interested in upgrading to the latest stable version of vBulletin 4, I think. But I'm not really sure. Apparently vB has had many many problems since version 3. A lot of people are moving from vB to things like xenforo. I'm concerned about doing anything that will break things.

http://xenforo.com/
http://xenforo.com/community/threads...xenforo.53616/

Interestingly, the more I read about xenforo, the more it sounds like it'd be the correct way to go. vBulletin, according to simple internet searches, is a dying software. Most major forums that used to use vB have switched to places like xenforo.

One reason: spam. It's no coincidence that it's very difficult to even register to join this forum. Every time we've tried to open the forum to new members, spam users inundated us, and we had to close it.

Any thoughts, questions, concerns?

My concern would be the facebook part. Does it require facebook integration? Can you turn that off?

I'm pretty sure that the facebook integration is only into the registration process, and only if someone wanted to register using their facebook account. I'm sure it's not a necessary component.
